Good morning bloggers,
Did you notice the smoke in the sky this morning, and yesterday. Smoke from wildfires across the Rocky Mountain states has spread over our sky in the flow aloft. I took this picture of the sunrise this morning:
It’s Friday! And, today is day 80 of the Drought In The Heartland. Rainfall amounts were mostly in the trace to .03″ range, and one thunderstorm caused more than an hour delay at the Midwest Classic golf tournament at the Links at Lionsgate golf course in Overland Park. Only .01″ of rain fell and there were two lightning strikes near by, but that was it.
Despite the smoke in our sky this morning, it is a great start to the day. We are forecasting the upper 70s to near 80 for the next three days. A weak disturbance will be moving our way on Saturday with a band of clouds thickening up, but the chance of measurable rain is under 50% even though I do believe it will sprinkle again. The chance of a sprinkle is 80% Saturday evening.
Have a great Friday! I will work on a more in-depth weather discussion on our weathercasts beginning at 4:30 PM today on 41 Action News.
